Libya - The man convicted of killing 270 in the 1988 bombing of a US jet has kicked the bucket at home in Tripoli just as the eclipsed Gemini new moon began manifesting in the cosmos.
Stargazers have described his RIP as an astrology classic and are warning a lot more eclipse-related deaths are likely to be announced.
Born on April Fools Day 1952 al-Megrahi's birth chart was riddled with the sort of fault lines normally seen in psychopaths' MRI brain scans.
"The position of the Death Star on his natal ascendant should have tipped the wink to the FBI," leading astro-neuro-surgery consultant Sir Sigmund Largactil warned on his diagnostic website this afternoon.
Other celestial pundits reckon al-Megrahi's troubled upbringing was hexed by the 1953 Coronation of the faux Queen Elizabeth II in a maelstrom that blighted a generation of terrists into acts of devil worship.
Tripoli sources said this afternoon he'll be cremated later according to ancient ritual associated with the Maghreb's bizarre solar cults.
Other eclipse fatalities to be announced shortly.
